Called here on the way back to our hotel after watching the Tour de France, they had really made an effort with an outside bar area to celebrate the tour, inside the pub is very trendy and quite large, would go back there again.

After being verbally abused by the manager at The Fleece because all our party had not arrived within 10 minutes of our table booking time, we walked out and rang The Fox. They said come straight down. Six of us enjoyed a fantastic breakfast with superb service, what had been a horrible start to Father's day was rescued. Thank you... More

It was almost 5.30 when we ordered our starters and after 7 before we had finished our desert. The food was excellent and I can... More

I can't recommend this place enough.Lots to choose from on the menu, wonderful food (especially the crab linguine) my favorite!!! The staff will bend over backwards to accomodate. We often come with our baby and are happy to provide chairs, cushions and warm babys food too, nothing is too much trouble. They also allow our labrador in the bar area,... More

We often meet up around this area and come off the M62 to find a lunch venue. We had a lunch here and found it to be an excellent venue all round. The food was very decent, really good and friendly service and good value. We saw them bring out the afternoon teas as well and they look amazing. We'll... More
